Vedic Concept of Creation of Universe

 
Vishnu Kant Verma (Author)
Synopsis Rig Veda is foremost among the four Vedas, considered to be one of the oldest texts known to mankind. For centuries Vedas are not only revered but are considered by many as treasure house of knowledge and wisdom. All ancient branches of Indian philosophy be it Brahman Granthas, Upanishad or Bhagwad Gita drew their inspiration from the Vedas. The universe of which our entire human existence is but a tiny part, could not have escaped the attention of those learned seers. Delving into the question of creation of the universe and how it all might have happened is not only one of most ancient inquisitiveness which has captured the imagination of human mind but also most logical outcome of human curiosity. It is therefore almost a certainty that Vedas have explored this most fascinating aspects of our existence and have propounded a comprehensive concept on its creation. What that concept is? How do the most revered texts explain the evolution of the universe? What are their views on the issue? These are definitely the questions which must have crossed the minds of all those connected with the study of philosophy specifically Indian philosophy. This book addresses these questions. The author has comprehensively established Rig Vedic concept on the evolution of creation. Interpretations of hymns have been based on Vedic grammar and roots of the words and are well supported by other subordinate texts such as Brahman Granths, Upanishads and others. Interrelations of hymns with continuum of central underlying thoughts contained in suktas have been decisively revealed in the book. The book brings out a complete technical terminology of Vedas related to cosmogony. The connoted meaning of such terms as Aditi, Apah, Hiranyagarbha, Apam Napat, Mitra, Varun and many more have been unveiled and established. The book makes an enthralling reading casting magical spell. Inquisitive minded reader will find it difficult to put down the book once he starts the reading.
